What to expect

Learners take five mandatory units in this qualification. The first unit looks at personal and professional development, helping the learner to identify their own development needs and plan how to fulfil them. The second unit develops practical team management skills. And the three remaining units of this section delve into the theory behind people management, leadership and business.

The support we provide

The delivery of the NVQ and Technical Certificate elements are combined via 1-2-1 sessions with the assessor. The assessor will support them with the “knowledge” elements, where learners will be required to look at various management and business models.
There will be occasions where the assessor will request to observe learners at their place of work and go through their portfolio, to evidence their competence and to meet the requirements of the standards within the qualification.
